On the next play from scrimmage, Gavin Crofoot intercepted Woodstock quarterback Michael Purkey, but the Spartans (3-0) couldn’t punch it in, having a touchdown pass called back because of a penalty.
Spartans punter Griffin Nelson then pinned the Blue Streaks inside their own 5-yard line.
Nelson intercepted another Purkey pass two plays later.
“It felt great,” Nelson said. “We had all the momentum and just kept going. I just wish I would’ve kept my feet to get the pick six.”
Connor Smith followed his blockers to pay dirt on the next play for the first of his two touchdowns in the half.
Spartans quarterback Grant McConkey also had a big half, escaping tacklers and taking what looked like a short gain 55 yards to the house.
McConkey also threw for two scores in the game, including a 41-yard bomb to Dominguez.
“I think we need to (pass) and I think it was a great opportunity for (McConkey) to do that,” Ryan said. “I thought we did some good things in the passing game. You have to be able to do both (run and pass) against the teams that we face in our league.”
The defense also came up big for the Spartans. The defense had two interceptions on the game and stuffed the running game, forcing the Blue Streaks into long third down situations.
The Blue Streaks (2-1) only managed one scoring drive on the first half as they targeted sophomore tight end Nathan Archambeau on a 10-yard pass into the end zone on a fourth and 2.
Archambeau added a second touchdown in the second half, but the game already was out of reach.
